Rapid-growth Tech consultancy business looking to replace current Head of Marketing who was leaving at short notice.

The CEO wanted talent with a proven track record in the tech sector and who could manage challenging internal stakeholders across five global business units.

They also needed to be capable of communicating the benefits of complex technology to a non-technical audience, whilst also managing a team of three in a remote-first model.

Business Challenges

The business needed candidates from a tech sector background who’d be prepared to work remotely, but with regular trips to London, Europe and the US. The budget and timescales were tight.

Our Approach & Solutions

  • Consulted with the Talent team and advised that they’d get better value from candidates based in the North

  • Identified a competitor target list across the UK and approached current or previous employees with the applicable background

  • Worked across our extensive Tech sector network to engage with candidates at the correct level and seek recommendations

  • Compiled a longlist of suitable candidates, thoroughly briefed and interviewed everyone interested in proceeding, then produced a shortlist of the best five candidates in the market

Our Results

We secured an excellent Head of Marketing with extensive tech sector experience within a month and an immediate start date due to recent redundancy.

The candidate also had the requisite senior stakeholder management experience having been a Marketing Director before but was now looking for a better culture fit.
